American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin fought through snow, rain and deep ruts to win her second World Cup slalom of the season Sunday, displaying her ability to deal with all types of conditions a month before the Sochi Olympics.

The 18-year-old led by 0.03 seconds after the opening run and ending up winning by 0.13 ahead of Maria Pietilae-Holmner of Sweden for the sixth victory of her career.

'I was really psyched to win again,' said Mikaela, who was 12th and second in her previous two slaloms.
